dc.description.abstract Law graduates entering the profession are not ready for the demands of a legal practice. There is a general skills deficit, especially in the areas of numeracy and literacy. This prompted the University of South Africa to implement a skills course for law students. The development of the module was challenging, considering the fact that Unisa is a distance learning facility. The open distance learning policy of Unisa is discussed, as well as the challenges of designing a skills module in this context. Statistics on the module, after 18 months of implementation, will also be highlighted. en
